Sheila Nelson's award-winning teaching approach available in a clearly structured progressive method covering preliminary to grade three in all stringed instruments. The Essential String Method integrates musical awareness, creativity and technical development from the outset, developing the pupil as a musician as well as an instrumentalist right from the start through an integrated programme of games, activities, songs and pieces. Developed by Sheila Nelson (violin), Cathy Elliott (Double Bass), Gerald Howard (Cello) and Adrian Thorne (musicianship) in collaboration with The Guildhall School of Music & Drama. A Millennium Product Winner. Sheila Nelson's acclaimed teaching approach is a radical advance in the teaching of stringed instruments. Making their way through the series, pupils encounter an attractive selection of new tunes and arrangements on which to build their repertoire. The material is presented as a logical progression of musical activities involving both the instrument and the voice. These make learning fun and are easily incorporated into instrumental lessons, simultaneously developing the pupil's technical and musical abilities while reinforcing aspects of the National Curriculum. 4 easy-to-use books for each instrument (violin, viola, cello & double bass) offer a practical solution for today's instrumental teacher. Researched and developed by leading teachers this series builds a firm foundation for every pupil's future music and technical development.
